Thanks, Tiger; do you know if this is the show that the Blasters did a song about Boll Weevil Blues or some such? I recall listening to this one (was living in TX, it was broadcast; the Dead didn't do all that well, but the Blasters blew me away, especially that song, that I have been searching for ever since).

Hey guy--much appreciated; I have looked for 20 yrs, and search on it regularly, but can't seem to find it...other than to know they did do a song, perhaps a traditional, perhaps called "Boll Weevil Blues" and I loved it...I, sadly, was an old fart with kids at home at the time, but it was broadcast, and they were hot (Blasters). I made a tape, but eventually it gave out and I lost that song.

Thanks,

WT

William, are you looking for a video (DVD) copy of the Blasters playing Farm Aid doing Boo Weevil? I had this on computer and can burn.

Hey Shake--so kind of you to respond. Thanks for your offer, but I was really hoping to find that a commercial release of the song/show was available. IE, not a video but music CD.

Really appreciate you digging this up!
